    Introduction Applied mathematics plays an important role to understand mathematics Mathematics is used in a lot of application fields and a tool to solve problems for a long time ago. It is a good way for non-mathematicians to understand what mathematics is doing to study the use of mathematics in applications

    Roggenbuck/Sperber

    The BMBF programs in mathematics sponsoring of more than 150 projects in applied mathematics at german research institutions and companies three programs: 1993 - 1997 1997 - 2001 2001 2004 a fourth program will start 2004 (currently: call for participation)

    Presentation of the projects: the print version

    Roggenbuck/Sperber

    CommentsDifficulties for the presentation of applied mathematics: Classification of projects (by mathematics, by application fields?) What is with multimedia-based information, e.g., visualization, software, ...? time delay, updating of printed information

    Roggenbuck/Sperber

    Advantages of the WebPotential advantages of the Web: Web is multimedia-based, software, visualisations, simulations, demos, interactive presentations, ... ) several communities can be addressed (developers, ingeneers, managers, students, mathematicians in industry and services or in research institutions)I local management and updating of information central services provide an added value

    Roggenbuck/Sperber

    Up to the Math&Industry In the past, the Web presentation of the BMBF programs in mathematics was restricted to general information about the program information about the status seminars a list of the projects http://www.iwr.uni-heidelberg.de/groups/amj/bmbf/bmbf.html

    this is not enough to provide a comprehensive view about the objectives and aims of the projects

    Roggenbuck/Sperber

    Main aims of the project Math&Industry development of a concept for a comprehensive, high-quality and standardized Web presentation projects of projects in applied mathematics main requirements: user-friendly, efficient access to the information of projects, flexible, long-term stable. implementation of the concept within the BMBF programs in applied mathematics

    Roggenbuck/Sperber

    Project data start of the project: 2001-09-01 Participating institutions: ZIB Berlin (project office, management, pilot user) IWI Osnabrck (technical development) IWR Heidelberg (pilot user) Uni Freiburg (pilot user)

    Local Web sitesTasks: to provide information about projects in a standardized form: uniform structure of the project information comprehensive information about a project, particularly for users with non-mathematical background enrichment of information by metadata, allowing to process the information by machines

    Roggenbuck/Sperber

    Central components Central portal http://www.mathematik-21.de: Gathering and processing of the local information (particularly of the metadata) Services, which provide different views to the information of projects Development of ontologies (to define the relations real problems - modelling - mathematical aspects) Archiving of finished projects

    Presentation of projects in the Web?

    Example: Umlaufplanung

    Roggenbuck/Sperber

    A first summary each project has a lot of relevant information: the problem and the aims the modeling of the problem the mathematical approach results and products administrative data

    to present a mathematical project is much more than a single Web page!

    Roggenbuck/Sperber

    AgendaIntroductionPresentation of applied mathematicsThe Math&Industry project: AimsAn exampleStructuring of informationThe Math&Industry-PageMetadataThe WebSiteMakerAbout the central portal

    Roggenbuck/Sperber

    Aims the Web presentations of the projects are addressed particularly to engineers, managers, technicians, and mathematicians coming from industry and services (users, who work actively in this field and also users, who could be interested in this field) the presentations should be focused to the real problems and the results of a project the Web presentations should provide a fast overview about a project detailed information about special aspects of the problem and its solution

    Roggenbuck/Sperber

    Structure of Websites advantages of the standardization: a easy navigation for the human user (uniform navigation within the Web presentation of a project) allows to process the information by machines ( better retrieval functionalities in the information space, defined by the Web presentations of the projects in the BMBF programs in mathematics)

    Roggenbuck/Sperber

    Structuring the project information (top level) * topic specific and mathematical modeling

    Overview about the Project(Projektbersicht)The Problem (Das Problem)Results and Products(Anwendungen und Produkte)Models* (Modelle)Participants(Beteiligte)Mathematical Aspects (Mathematische Behandlung)

    Roggenbuck/Sperber

    Groups and subgroups of the Math&Industry Page

    Roggenbuck/Sperber

    Groups and subgroups Participants (Beteiligte) Project officer / Associates (Projektverantwortliche /Mitarbeiter) Companies / Scientific institutions (Firmen / Wissenschaftliche Institutionen)

    The problem (Das Problem) Problem specification (Problembeschreibung) Glossary (Glossar) Related questions (Verwandte Fragestellungen)

    Roggenbuck/Sperber

    The groups and subgroups Models (Modelle) Modeling (Modellierung) Glossary (Glossar) Similar models (hnliche Modelle) Mathematical Aspects (Mathematische Behandlung) Mathematical Models (Mathematische Modelle) Mathematical methods and procedures (Mathematische Methoden und Verfahren) Publications (Publikationen) Software /Simulations (Software / Simulationen) Glossary (Glossar) Related mathematical problems (hnliche mathematische Probleme)

    Roggenbuck/Sperber

    Currently, the proposal is under discussion (until end of March)problems names of the groups and subgroups redundance: the contents of the groups may overlap assignment subgroups - groups

    Roggenbuck/Sperber

    Roggenbuck/Sperber

    The Math&Industry Page: a local portal to the information of a projectSome comments: The Math&Industry Page is a classification schema for the information of a project. the core of the Math&Industry Page: the links to the information in the groups and subgroups further on the Math&Industry Page: the title of the project in the future: a navigation bar, linked to the central services of Math&Industry

    Roggenbuck/Sperber

    Example:Umlaufplanungthe project page ber das Projekt

    Roggenbuck/Sperber

    Example:Umlaufplanungthe project page Anwendungsszenarien

    Roggenbuck/Sperber

    If the projects would reorganize its Web presentation in this way, then the information of the projects could be harvested and indexed according to this structure, then the central services could generate and manage various views over the projects, e.g., a list of all projects, a list of all projects providing software, etc. an enhanced search (a search over the whole information space and also a search in the groups/subgroups of the Math&Industry Page)

    Roggenbuck/Sperber

    Roggenbuck/Sperber

    More semantic information about the single facts of a project A more sophisticated access to the information requires more semantic annotation of the information a better semantic annotation of the contents of the groups and subgroups is neededThis means: standardization for the description of information for publications, persons, institutions, glossaries, ...

    Roggenbuck/Sperber

    The approach Question 1: What should be presented? structuring of information, fixing the vocabulary Question 2: How should the contents be presented?

    partly the Math-Net developments can be used
